    dotsReal World Uglinessdots

    The colors in the paint store
    are never as beautiful
    as the ones inside of your head,
    but there are no samples of those
    and attempting to describe them
    will reverse your sanity.
    Sadly, you'll have to settle
    for some shade of real world ugliness.

      Imagination always surpasses reality, especially man-made reality.
    The colors in the store aren't as vivid and luminous as those in nature,let alone those that seen on the palette in the mind.

    It takes the imagination of a creator--be it a mortal artist or otherwise to unleash what most people can only dream---
    I think you said that well---
    Great minimalist write with maximum punch!

      Ah yes....vivid images in full blown color that can only live inside of my imagination and the rude awakening that we always have to settle for the lousy dullness of reality. Not fair!

      How so very true, you can never get just the colour you want, its never deep enough, never the right shade of purple...I try to describe them anyway, having long left my sanity locked up in a mason jarin the basement..gathering dust. Excellent write. ~Sicobe R. Crow

      attempting to describe this poem might reverse my sanity as well....clear and straightforward, dreary in the most uplifting of ways....the thoughts, images, and scenes of the outside can't match the inside, but to leave them entirely...just can't...very good poem..

      Your style and form are to be admired. And after re-reading it I wish I had rated it one higher. Keep churning out the free thoughts. This one was wonderful.

      the truth in those lines is real.What goes on in our imagination is far better in there then it will ever be in this world.

      simplistic truth, reminds me of something a grandfather would say to his grandchildren to pass on a little knowledge, the final line is a bold finish, very conclusive

      Your twist of colors sent the senses on a rollercoaster ride reality-check. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then your colorful rendition is in the heart of the writer.

      I have to paint my room again, but I can't decide for a color. I would love to have green but I don't find a green I like. a really good poem. so true. I like the image 'real world ugliness'. perfect to describe it.
